For the Trees and Hills anthology Shelter, 2010.

The context for this story is the financial disaster of the late Bush dynasty and the following housing crisis, but the details on squatting in a property came from “Squatter Homes and Garden,” a 2004 Pittsburgh City Paper article by the talented Julie Mickens. I carried a clipping of this article around for five years before I found out when I’d need it, but I was so glad when I did.
